You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
- the ability to speak and understand any language
- the ability to travel through time
- the ability to make any two people agree with each other
OOH, tough call.
I think I would choose the ability to speak and understand any language. Given that there are so many different languages and dialects in the world, and our societies are now quite multi-cultural, they involve a variety of different languages.
Have you ever been into a Philippino nail salon? You can’t understand what they’re saying, but you know those bitches are talking about you, and absolutely picking you apart… or is that just racial stereotyping? Are any of you Philippino and work in a nail salon? Care to share your comments?? No? Didn’t think so!
I would love to then use this superpower and work as an interpreter / translator for some organisation like the UN, or perhaps a giant global company that does big business deals with all types of internationals – then I can be involved in brokering deals between people who don’t speak english.
I could yell and scream at people who piss me off in their native language so they’ll actually understand what I’m saying instead of just looking at me blankly. *lol*
I wouldn’t have to rely on Google Translate!!
I wouldn’t need to have subtitles turned on when watching foreign films!!
